Houston bakery tees up unsold Yankees cookies for batting practice

A Houston bakery teed up some cookies Saturday as the Astros prepared to face the New York Yankees in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.

El Bolillo Bakery officials said they made cookies with the Astros and Yankees logos, but predictably, were left with lots of leftover cookies with the rival New Yorkers' logo, KTRK reported. In an Instagram video, bakery officials used the Yankees cookies for batting practice, "pitching" the snacks to a waiting policeman in the bakery's parking lot.

A caption on the Instagram post read, "El Bolillo Bakery- 1, Famous NY Bakery- 0. Any challengers?"

The Yankees got the last laugh, winning Game 1 by a 7-0 score.
